They went from

"Their walls are built of cannonballs, their motto is don't tread on us"

to

"If all you got to live for is what you left behind, then get yourself a powder charge and seal that silver mine."

to

Paradise waits, on the crest of a wave, her angels in flames.
She has no pain, like a child she is pure, she is not to blame.
Poised for flight, wings spread bright, spring from night into the sun.
Don't stop to run, she can fly like a lie, she can't be outdone.

Tell me the cost; I can pay, let me go, tell me love is not lost.
Sell everything; without love day to day insanity's king.
I will pay day by day, anyway, lock, bolt and key.
Crippled but free, I was blind all the time I was learning to see.

Help on the way, well, I know only this, I've got you today.
Don't fly away, cause I love what I love and I want it that way.
I will stay one more day, like I say, honey it's you.
Making it too, without love in a dream it will never come true.

Maybe it's cause I've been tripping every weekend for the last month, but methinks I see a parallel between the evolution of Hunter's lyrics for the band and their attitude towards tapers ;)

The transition from resistance to one of acceptance.
